What readers are saying:

"This is the user guide for living life in our new always on, always connected world.... a great book, one that I'll read many times looking for new ways to improve my life. Gina hit it out of the park." — Robert Scoble, author of Naked Conversations: How Blogs are Changing the Way Businesses Talk with Customers

"By the time you finish Lifehacker, you'll find yourself standing triumphantly on top of what you used to be buried under - whether it's emails, to do lists, spam, your calendar, or the thousands of things competing for your attention. This book will either revolutionize your life or just make it immensely easier -- how can you go wrong? The only thing Gina left out in her 88 tips is the most important one - buy this book!" — Brian Bailey, author of The Blogging Church

"I love it. You know a book is good when you're simultaneously jealous and mad that you didn't write it yourself." — Scott Hanselman, HanselMinutes podcast

"This is a book I've been looking forward to reading for awhile, and I wasn't disappointed... You should see the number of post-it notes I already have in my copy." — Thomas Duff, developer

"Lifehacker is the single best resource for identifying new tools and processes that make your life better. [Lifehacker the book] rocks. I highly recommend it." - Steve Rubel, marketing strategist

"The book is cross platform, covering hacks for Windows and Mac. I run both operating systems so I loved how the hacks addresses everyone. ItŐs really handy for anyone who uses a computer to enhance their work or personal lives. Believe it or not, I also found it handy to have Lifehacker in book form, even though pretty much the entire content of the tome can be accessed online for nada. Pick up a copy today. Your life will thank you." — Michel Bauwens, P2P Foundation

"Gina Trapani, the editor and main contributor to the Web site Lifehacker.com, is a saint. Maybe not in the religious sense, but I value her ability to present solutions to a variety of problems using a mixture of common sense, technology and compassion, conveyed with a positive and encouraging tone. Furthermore, as a writer, I admire anyone who can turn techno-babble and geek-speak into simple, comprehensible language. (And one senses a good soul behind the words, hence the saintly designation.)" — Richard Pachter, The Sun News
